I know I keep plugging this no benifitt to me but a good site to compare SIBS & engine packages of loads of manufactures (Ron hale marine) when I bought my rig this year it was 1000 cheaper than anyone else,seamark nunn seam to be competitive too.so when buying secondhand you have a comparison some good stuff out there on eBay if you know what to look for
Good luck

Rowing a SIB is hard work compared to a hard boat. If you row a wooden rowing boat, you give a good pull on the oars and it glides for a bit before the next oar stroke. Because SIBs are generally light, quite dumpy in shape, and they ride high int he water, they are very sensitive to the wind and tend not to glide between strokes. The best way to row a SIB is lots of short oar strokes rather than a few long ones. They are not really rowing boats.

That said, a few years ago I rowed my SIB across Loch Long to a dive site - but mainly to say I'd done it.

There are lots of cheap SIB hulls around. Unless you are keen to buy new,bide your time.

Have a look at takakat bit on the expensive side but the light 3m boat looks a good prospect it's a catamaran plane with low hp and stable.
